WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 5-7PM
update: please RSVP here
I'm looking forward to spending time in Catherine Clark's beautiful shop, Brooklyn General. This is the perfect venue for a little UPPERCASE gathering. Please drop by and join us for a browse (yarn, fabric, tools, books and creative supplies!) and refreshments. If you have something you'd like to show me for consideration for the magazine, bring it along and we'll have an informal show and tell. We'll have the Feed Sacks book, the new issue and I'll bring a few goodies in my suitcase...
From their website:
"Brooklyn General Store resides tucked away on a sweet block West of the Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill neighbourhoods. At the north end of Red Hook, this commercial block on Union Street used to be a thriving shopping block for all types of foods and goods. Brooklyn General’s home within the Old Frank’s Department Store is a throw back to that era, with its preserved floor to ceiling shelves, rolling ladders and classic old wooden floors. The vintage interior is not reproduced, just uncovered, cleaned and painted. If the original shelving isn’t enough to hold all the goods, vintage rolling shoe racks, stacks of old blueberry boxes, vintage pie safes, vintage hardware displays and shelving built from reclaimed wood house the rest."
The Brooklyn General instagram is nice to follow!
